Bloom

Bloom, even when you want to die

Because all that you’ve begun to write

Comes out in clumsy sentences. So why

Is it that you even try?


Bloom, even when you look like a mess

In the mirror as your words spill out just as

Your tears dry up. The darker it gets, the less

Everything starts to make sense.


Bloom, even when your blood freezes over

As your mind slips away. Too much pressure

To survive this drift okay. You’re getting closer

To losing your composure.


Bloom, even when your hands shake

As realisation hits after each mistake.

Life moves fast & you’re a little too late

Feeling like a lightweight.


Please bloom, even when you want to die

Because the voices in your head... they lie.

Please bloom, even when you look like a mess

In the mirror. Sometimes, you can lean on me & rest.

Please bloom, even when your blood freezes over.

Don’t you know diamonds are made under pressure?

Please bloom, even when your hands shake

You’ll bend but with Him, you’ll never break.
